School Swimming
 
Regular Swimming Lessons are conducted in our School Pool during Term One and Term Four. All children will be required to have a swim shirt or T-shirt prior to the commencement of swimming lessons.
 
We also remind parents/carers of the need for children to apply sunscreen for swimming lessons and ensure all necessary equipment including swimming bag, sunscreen, togs, towel, goggles (optional), swim caps (optional), change of underwear etc. is brought to school on their swimming day.
 
All children will be expected to participate in swimming lessons unless a note from their parents, detailing the reason they cannot swim on that day, is presented to the office. Alternatively, parents may choose to contact the office by phone. This is an essential component of the HPE curriculum and I appreciate the support of parents in ensuring all students participate. Students swim in their usual time slot for PE lessons.
 
All swimming costs are covered by the schoo.l
 
The pool is co-managed with the South Burnett Council, so is available for use to the public outside school hours.
